I know you've had enough of this chill!  BUT IT'S STILL CONTINUING! So, we will walk on MAY 5!

Yes, spring will come - and so will the time to Walk the George Washington Bridge! 

Starting Time: The Bridge Walk starts at 8:30am on Sunday, May 5 (rain date same time, May 6). 


Meeting Point: We shall meet at the corner of W. 178th St. and Fort Washington Avenue, just outside the west door of the GWB Port Authority Bus Terminal, which is also the 175th St. stop on the IND A train on the subway.  (For those who would drive in, there is a garage close by.  Please contact your guide if you're interested.) 


About the walk: This is a long walk! By my calculations, the distance computes to about 8.5 miles. But you're only walking one way (see below), so don't worry - many have done this before: 


Wear comfortable shoes, bring water (there are rest rooms along the walk - although there is a long-ish stretch without one), and perhaps a snack to tide you over until we reach the Tenafly Classic Diner!

Ending Point: We will end at the Tenafly Classic Diner, and return to NYC via the #166 New Jersey Transit bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal at W. 42nd St. in Manhattan.



Cost of the walk: ONLY $35!  (Bus: $6.00 - or less!) 


NOTE: This will walk has a 4 person minimum - and 10 person maximum.  (You can be a single or a couple, it’s the total number of people that will be the minimum.) So, please call 4/21/18 to confirm!

WALK THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE TO BROOKLYN - Walking the Brooklyn Bridge may seem at first like a major undertaking - but remembering that New York Mayor William J. Gaynor would regularly walk the four miles from his home in Park Slope to City Hall might motivate you to explore America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights, by foot - it's just across the Bridge!  Hear about the history of its creation, its creators, and the history of the nation and the two cities it would bring together.  Meeting Spot: near Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Subway stop for 4, 5, and 6 lines. Easy walking, some stairs, about 2.0 miles.
